How well do you know Shakespeare’s language?

William Shakespeare was an English dramatist, poet, and actor who is often considered the greatest writer in the English language. His vast collection of work includes sonnets, comedies, historical plays, great tragedies, and tragicomedies, all of which have been translated into every major modern language. His most renowned plays include Romeo and Juliet, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, The Merchant of Venice, Hamlet, Othello, Macbeth, King Lear, Antony and Cleopatra, The Tempest, and Cymbeline.

 

Do you fancy yourself something of a Shakespeare scholar? Can you separate falchionscimitar, and poniard? Take this tough little quiz about the language of Shakespeare!

Occupations – Jobs

A Historic Topic – A vs. An

Writers sometimes confuse the use of the articles a and an. We were all taught that a precedes a word starting with a consonant and that an precedes a word starting with a vowel (a, e, i, o, u, and sometimes y).

Here’s the secret to making the rule work: The rule applies to the sound of the letter beginning the word, not just the letter itself. The way we say the word will determine whether or not we use a oran. If the word begins with a vowel sound, you must use an. If it begins with a consonant sound, you must use a.

For example, the word hour begins with the consonant h. But the h is silent, so the word has a vowel sound. Hence:

an hour

The rule works the other way as well. Take the word university. It begins with the vowel u. But the uis pronounced as if it begins with the consonant y. Hence:

a university

But consider the word umbrella, also starting with u. It starts with the vowel sound uh. Hence:

an umbrella

Another vowel with a consonant sound is o. When spoken, the letter can sound as if it begins with the consonant w. Thus, we use the a:

a one-room apartment
a once-famous actor

Articles with Words Beginning with ‘h,’ a or an

The consonant giving us the most trouble is probably h. When the h begins a word and the first syllable is strongly pronounced, you should use a.

a history of Europe (accent falls on his)
a hero (accent falls on he)

But when the beginning h is weakly pronounced (historic, habitual), you may use an, especially in British English.

an historic occasion (hisTORic)
an habitual offender (haBITual)

But these usages are becoming increasingly old-fashioned, so you may also use a.

a historic occasion
a habitual offender

Articles with Acronyms, a or an

Finally, the rule applies to acronyms as well. If you pronounce a letter as a letter and it begins with a vowel sound, you should precede it with an. The consonants with vowel sounds include f, h, l, m, n, r, s, and x.

He flew in an SST.
He fired an M‑1.
He attended an FDA hearing.

By the same token, if a vowel letter, with a consonant sound, is pronounced as a letter, you should use a.

He made a U‑turn.

Got it? So what is your grade?

An A?
A B?
Surely not an F.

We choose the world we want.

Wouldn’t it be magnificent if the only debates, the attacks people make in the world were made of things that do not hurt anyone, for example La Tomatina, in Spain, this huge festival where people fight with tomatoes instead of grenades? Or maybe like the Holi colour festival in India, in which people throw only colourful powder to celebrate the arrival of Spring instead of gun shots… Wouldn’t it be amazing?

Nowadays the world is getting really hard times, most of the things we watch in television are running around violence, it is really hard to see something AGAINST violence huh? so the big question here is: Are we creating the world we want or are we getting the world we deserve? WE CAN’T REMOVE VIOLENCE WITH MORE VIOLENCE…

There is a famous song, which talks about a guy who is imagining a world very different to the one we are living now, how maybe some things like Possessions, religion, countries, flags may cause so much harm, can cause people go to the edge of war, What if anything of that exists? What if that makes the difference between war and peace? Try to imagine.
